Enjoy tastes of the Mediterranean on the go at the Saturday Carseldine Markets. Eat A Pocket is providing us with wholesome, good food, in a pocket.   Monday August 25 Monday’s are never bad when you clock off and head to Cowch. They will sort you out with some seriously delectable desserts, a boozy cocktail or two, and provide enough ambience to make you forget all about the four days of work ahead. Tuesday August 26 Take our cues from the fit kids of Instagram, we’re ditching the cup-o-soup and heading to Botanica. Serving fresh, delicious salads every day, as well as some seriously good quiche and gluten free cookies, we don’t know why we aren’t here every day… Oh yeah, burgers. Wednesday August 27 There are four words that have us throwing caution to the wind, and every diet plan out the window – all you can eat. Zuri have put us in some serious dilemmas with their all you can eat sushi Wednesdays. Are you game? Thursday August 28 Don’t worry Ribs & Burgers aren’t inviting you to show up in your birthday suit. But they are stripping their burgers of their traditional kit and serving them up bunless and fancy free. Friday August 29 We are no strangers to standing on the sidewalk of Collingwood Street at 10am waiting to get into Shouk because it is so goddamn busy. Because it is so goddamn good. We are more than happy to hear that this Paddington gem is now open for dinner. Saturday August 30 Okay so maybe you hit it a little too hard at The Gresham last night. It’s okay we aren’t here to judge. And lucky for you Tall Short Espresso is here, with their blueberry and banana smoothie to provide to the perfect hangover cure. Sunday August 31 Seriously $1 wings. We don’t think this needs explaining. London Porterhouse, go!
